okay yesterdays question went well so we will try a 2nd one. I know you can not put re-treds on the driving tires. Can you put them on the rear duelies. My big yellow school bus has them??

Just my opinion, but I would never put re-treads on anything I drive. I have seen far too much rubber on the highways, 99% from truck re-treads. I have seen them come apart before and it is not a pretty site. I value my life and my families lives to much to run re-treads.

But, to each his own!!

I used to drive them big Crown school buses in California and cant tell you how many times I was stranded with blown out recaps, especially on our tandem axle buses, tire scrubbing.
In my few years of driving school bus in Vegas, they had just gotten away from using recaps, expensive but much safer.

Dont use them!
